If calm-water canoeing interests you, beautiful Bayou Dorcheat winds its way through the entire length of Webster Parish. Once a major thoroughfare for paddleboats and steamships. Dorcheat offers scenic fishing, boating and watersport opportunities. Sportsmen can access the bayou from a number of locations, including the neighboring village of Dixie Inn.
Picnicking is a popular pastime along the quiet banks of beautiful Bayou Bodcau, which meanders its way through a swampy, heavily wooded valley. Fishing, camping, canoeing, hunting, horseback riding, mountain bike riding or bird watching are also pursued here.
Whether you shoot with a camera or a rifle, the forests, lakes, bayous, meadows of Webster Parish are home to an abundance of whitetail deer and other game.
